R (on the application of Hamilton-Jackson) v HM Assistant Coroner for Mid Kent and Medway

Coroner – Inquest. The Divisional Court held that the defendant coroner had erred in his directions to the jury in the inquest into the death of the claimant's son while he was in prison, in particular, by failing to distinguish between the meaning of national and local policies concerning self-harm. Accordingly, the question and answer to the second question of the jury questionnaire would be quashed.
